Visit to the Strand Gallery
After reading a review in Amateur Photographer I was lucky enough to get to the last day of the London Riots Revisited exhibition. I thought that this would be interesting on a few fronts.
I was involved in them, in a small way (Legally!!)
2. My Job
3. A chance to see how a photographer from the Press Association capture images in what can be very dangerous situations
4. With a view to my new courses next year.
The images were taken by Lewis WHYLD. (lewiswhyld.com). He is a press photographer, for the Press Association, based in London.
A quick online search shows some great images. The above image is from his Twitter Account!!
The images on show were stunning. I know how difficult it can be in these situations having been in a number of riots myself over the last 26 years working in London.
The ability to capture images like this when all around you is, to use a police term “Kicking Off” is rather remarkable.
A great exhibition and a great venue, right in the centre of London
